    Pokemon Go- Cheap Mobile 14th Mar 17 at 3:56 PM
    Trying to find a cheap mobile for my son. He wants to be able to play Pok!mon Go but there are a lot of phones where you cannot do this. From reading up you need at least 2gb. Budget is under £140. For some reason he would like to be on Vodafone. The phone I have researched is the Vodafone Smart Ultra 7 but I still cannot make out whether you can play Pok!mon on this. I would insist on a PAYG type deal

    All advice gratefully received.

    I have the Smart Ultra 6 and it's compatible with mine (I've just checked) so the later 7 will have no problems.

    Lenovo Moto G4 with 2GB RAM is £145
    Lenovo Moto G5 with 3GB RAM is £180

    I suggest go for SIM-free phone instead.

    With Pokemon go, you probably using 300MB a month?
    Why using Vodafone PAYG, there are other with cheaper price...

    Thanks, don't want a Motorola.

    If I go with the Smart Ultra 7 how would I get a better deal than PAYG?

    On the Vodafone website the phone is £19 per month for 500 mb

    I also don't understand roaming. The bundles on offer say Roaming not included but I would need this?
